Editor’s Corner – Our Hope
By Mikal Harrington Brown
“We need good leadership!” is a plea heard all too often these days. Whether you work in the private, non-profit, or public sector good leadership can be the difference between success and failure. The goal of the Rochester Leadership Digest (RLD) is to provide Rochester and western New York with quarterly reviews and analyses of how people from diverse backgrounds are developing as leaders , and the issues they face.
In August of 2018, New York Times bestseller Ken Blanchard spoke at the Global Leadership Summit in Henrietta, NY. His inspiring message of leadership could be summarized with his closing remarks, “You can make a difference. So often in the past, we think the politicians will do it.” He argued, however, “This is not the case.”
As a reader, I would urge you to realize the power you possess to improve your company, your school, your health center, your place of worship, or your home – and good leadership is the binding agent that connects mission to success.
Though it is a natural gift to some, leadership most often entails a set of skills that need to be learned in order to realize one’s highest potential. That is the mission of the Rochester Leadership Digest: to help upstate New Yorkers develop their own leadership styles. Throughout the rest of 2018 and 2019, we would like to hear from you about the following question: How can you grow as a leader? Our hope is to help you answer this question, along with others, and provide you with information to achieve your goal!
